Last weekend I went to see my favorite Roller Derby team – the “Runaway Brides” – and they were just awesome out playing the “Schoolyard Scrappers” to a well deserved and convincing win. Ellie Mayhem the leading jammer for the “Brides” was just pure poetry in motion as she glided past one bemused blocker after another.
But even more awesome was the fact that I did not just get to watch a game, I actually got to watch two full games that evening plus meet the players and have great exchanges with other Roller Derby fans. It was 4 hours of entertainment and social interaction for an amazing price .
Sure they may have been only 500 people there but that was also part of the appeal – I felt important and appreciated.
It is events like these that are not just great value for money but also bring you great overall satisfaction. And this is exactly what the InfoSol Business Intelligence Seminar (IBIS) is all about – great value and great satisfaction.
IBIS delivers 3 full days of immersion hands-on boot camp training in the most popular BusinessObjects solutions along with the opportunity to meet top Business Intelligence developers and specialists and have great knowledge transfer exchanges with your peers. There is also the opportunity to see the latest and future BI products in action and hear about inspired customer solutions recently implemented.
The immersion boot camps which include Xcelsius Beginner, Xcelsius Master, Web Intelligence Master, Crystal Reports 2008 Master and Xcelsius Data caching with InfoBurst are particularly unique. Hands-on education for these topics at this level is difficult to find.
The best part of all is that the IBIS package includes 3 nights of luxury accommodations at the breathtaking Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, all group meals, resort fees, taxes, and free internet.
Last week, I met a BI Director of a major global corporation at the SAP Sapphire conference who commented that while Sapphire was a huge event attended by thousands, it did not compare to IBIS in terms of its first class venues and overall value.
I could not agree more.
